What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

West breeze accompanied by a light, snowfall which con I tu-nl through­ out Saturday, making one think of what !.«■ «lid with his Hummers wa_'es; hut on Sunday the weather ha«l moderated to the extent of being a genuine M ayday, thereby creating a discu-sion as to whether it would not lie advisable to excli iage overco its for linen «lusters. Saturday, ’oeing a tiay set apart for tlie issuing of rati«,ns, cal'ed together both the«iUl and the young who resale in the immediate vicinity ot the stock- ' ade. Your correspomlent saw many familiar faces among them,theposessers of winch were but a few short year« ago residing in mansions and enjoying all the luxuries « f lif»>; their pro visions,etc., hauled to their very «lo«>rs in a delivery wagon, but now carrying an linlian’s rations home on their backs, «ir drawn by travoi dogs. Lo, how the miguty have fallen! T«i see a man or woman who lias et joyed all the pl«*asures • ! civilization, put on the war paint and blanket, seems lil-e a «beam. Whilst they are en leavoiing to adopt, the-old traditional ways of the blanket Indians, the blank«t Indian is progressing in civilization, and is fust adopting the ways of the whites. Good substantial log houses have taken the place of the tepee, and are furnislie«! with stoves, furniture and provi ions in abundance, which makes the intnatss feel as proud as Jay Gould with his vast millions. All of this lias ben brong .t about un­ der Die able management <»f Major Steell, who watches’over lib wards with ».yigijan.t eye. Gambling, likojhe whis- keytra<ie,iH prohibited upou tlm reser­ vation; peverty ha* taken a back «eat, ami peace arnl plenty reign triumphant. Among the many oh'- liners who are employe«! at the agency are noth eablc: Harry’Lambert,ei-h fc erk; E (.’.Garrett, iwsue clerkjjChas. Auuury, heat! farmer; .lames Brown, assistant firmer; Tims. Dawson, carpenter; James Perron,inter­ preter; Baptiste Rondin, butcher. E fJ. Current also holds the po-iti m of U. S. Commissioner, whi'st J >hu Nabors holds down the « ffice • f U 8. D puty .Maishal. For«!, who is wanted across the line, and a man who is charged with dispens­ ing Rpiritous liquors to Indiai s, are in j ll here awaiti g«rial, \\ liilst. the Indian c > efs weie in Wash- ii gt.«m they visit«;«! ihe “ Great Father,” the navy yard, Smithsonian Institute, Patent Offiie, Intelior department and the theatre. \Vii«I a nit mi Is seemed most, to s+rike their fattcy, and are their chief t.-pic of co»nversation since their return. The Becietury of ttie Interior presented each «>• them with presents and tnouey amounting to about §40 per head. News leached here yestenlay that old man Lee. foreman at S. C. Burd’s ranch on Milk River, is down with la grippe and in a critical c«uidi>i«)n. One great drawback in the line «if tele­ graphic communication has just come to light heie. For instance, tl.e nearest telegraph« .ffice is at Blackfoot stati«>n All messages to and fi«»m the Northwest Territories have to be sent via St. Paul and Winiiif eg. The Western Union man* agei-at BlacKf.iot positively refuses to send nn ssages over anv other line but his own. which not only causes great delay but considerable exoense to the sender of message««. As neither side of the lint iy no longer a r« fuueforcrirniiials, an«! as the ot j cts «»f both g«»vernments is to capture and try escap«-il criminals as speeoily as possible, something should lie o«»ne at once to rectify the this unmqessary delay.
